THIS IS A total STAND-ALONE NOVEL. No need to read the first two books in the series to enjoy this book. This is not a dark romance.

Every day you stay gone
I die a thousand more deaths

Lane Parker has secrets he hasn’t even told his closest friends. He may have earned their respect but it’s undeserved. He may seem genuine but he’s a total fraud. He may look strong, but on the inside he’s weak and drowning with no chance of catching his breath any time soon.

After four years, Lane finally gets the call he’s been waiting for. Given back a piece of the life he’s been fighting so hard to reclaim, will he be able to handle everything that comes along with it? And if so, can all of his broken promises be redeemed?

So, I don’t give up and I won’t let them win
I will find you and I will make sure that you know
You’re my everything


Beautiful Broken Promises is the third book in the Broken series but is completely a standalone novel. This series has been one of my absolute favorite New Adult series since I first got my hands on Beautiful Broken Rules. I literally tell everyone I talk to that they NEED to read these books. Kimberly Lauren writes a story completely different than any other I have read and Beautiful Broken Promises was beyond AMAZING and UNIQUE. This is by far her best work yet.


I think it is extremely important that I don’t give any more away in this review than the incredibly vague blurb tells you. When I first read the blub for this book I was wondering if it was really necessary to give so little about the plot away. You really go into this book blind and I honestly believe it is so much more of an emotional roller-coaster that way. The twist and turns in this book were ones I would never have guessed.

Lane was everything I wanted him to be and so much more. He was damaged, bruiting, and as alpha as you can imagine. Lane starts out crude and womanizing but over time we really got to know the amazingly intense yet  gentle and devoted man he can be. Watching Lane’s character develop over the course of this beautiful story was something I truly look forward to doing again and again when I re-read it (and I am positive I will)


This review has to be the hardest review I have ever written. How to you convey how AMAZING a story is without giving away any of the plot and I hope that is what I did. If I could give Beautiful Broken Promises more than 5 Smooches I would. Beautiful Broken Promises is an emotional, tragic, uplifting, sexy, and captivating story that I am positive everyone will love. I will say as vague as both the blurb and my review are you will get your HEA and while parts of the story are heartbreaking overall I believe Lane’s story to be about overcoming that heartbreak and making a better and happier life for himself and those around him.
